Stop Bullying Now!

on November 3, 2011

Today I am reposting something that I read on Facebook because I truly believe that bullying needs to stop now! Recently there was an article about a young boy who took his own life because he didn’t want to have to face his bully. This really hit home with me having a young daughter and not wanting her to have to deal with bullying in her life. I was stunned at how this effected me personally and how I felt a huge need to do something about bullying. And so I am reposting this short article about bullying hoping that it may hit home with someone and help to stop bullying.
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said ………………they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying ♥
